Analyzing 2030 goals visualy

I'm fascinated by Sankey diagrams. The concept is interesting, they are visually appealing, and it's easy to understand the correlation between the information. One application, Fimeo, developed by Density Design, allows anyone to upload a .tsv (tab separated values) file and turn it into an interactive Sankey. Having a handy free tool at our disposal could really help us explain options to clients when making those tough choices.

I don't know where this data set came from, but someone uploaded data on a bunch of different project types in different parts of the country, and saw how they performed against meeting 2030 energy targets. Go to the site so you can see how it works. You can select different data in different combinations and orders to see if there is a more effective way to see your information.

What are some other imaging or communication tools you use for design statistics?
